Attached. The new create_local_group function suffers from a few attacks 
of the block-copy-devil ;)

A new version of the postfix-config script using the new csih script is 

No further issues in the csih script found so far.

There is a minor issue in the passwd tool which should be documented:
passwd USER requires the Windows user name, but passwd -R USER requires 
the Cygwin user name.

Without -R, there is some attempt to convert Cygwin->Windows, but it fails:

# passwd foo+bar
Windows username : bar
New password: ...
Re-enter new password: ...
passwd: unknown user foo+bar
Try again.

# passwd bar
Password changed.

# passwd -R bar
Storing password failed: No such file or directory

# passwd -R foo+bar
